Abstract

An analysis of inclusive pion production in proton-beryllium collisions at 6.4, 12.3, and 17.5 GeV/c proton beam momentum has been performed. The data were taken by Experiment 910 at the Alternating Gradient Synchrotron at the Brookhaven National Laboratory. The differential π+ and π- production cross sections (d2σ/dpdΩ) were measured up to 400 mrad in θπ and up to 6 GeV/c in pπ. The measured cross section was fit with a Sanford-Wang parametrization.
